The Florida Prepaid College Board, along with outside investment consultant Callan Associates, uses a strategic and competitive selection process to identify and contract with professional investment managers. Each investment manager is competitively selected based on numerous factors including, but not limited to: investment philosophy and strategy, performance history, organizational experience and financial stability.
Contracts with the investment managers may be terminated by the Board by giving the investment manager 30 days written notice. In the event a contract is terminated or expires, the Board is required under Florida law to obtain any replacement investment management services by means of a competitive procurement process, or, under certain circumstances, it may retain the services of an investment manager through an agreement with the State Board of Administration.
The Program carefully monitors the performance of the investment managers against selected benchmarks determined by the Board with the assistance of Callan Associates. At any time, the Board reserves the right to change investment managers and/or the selected benchmark in order to offer the best possible array of choices.
